I am back from a great trip to North Carolina, where I gave a presentation titled Joint Venturing and Teaming on Federal Government Contracts. The presentation covered the key distinctions between joint venturing and prime/sub teaming, how to form compliant joint ventures and prime/sub teams for set-aside procurements, the role of mentor-protege programs, and related topics.
Things got off to a bit of a rocky (or at least a tired) start, thanks to a Dave Matthews Band concert on Wednesday night. No, I didn’t attend, but it turned out that many of my hotel neighbors are big DMB fans, who loudly celebrated Mr. Matthews’ performance into the wee hours. Thanks for nothing, Rooms 318 and 319.
Fortunately, the rest of the trip was very enjoyable. I want to thank my hosts at the North Carolina Small Business and Technology Development Center, who organized the event and kept everything running smoothly (trust me, no one wants to see me try to set up a slide projector). And a big “thank you” to the audiences in both Charlotte and Greensboro for your graciousness and great questions.
If you weren’t able to attend yesterday’s presentations, you don’t have to be left out. Just contact me, and I would be happy to send you a copy of the slides.
